Mike Adams from NaturalNews posted these findings about parsley and tumors.
Apparently parsley, celery and other foods like apples, oranges, nuts and other plant foods contain a specific substance that can stop certain breast cancer tumor cells from multiplying and growing.
I found it very interesting and wanted to share with you:
Did you ever use parsley simply to decorate some food — and then toss the herb aside?
You might want to reconsider that and make sure you actually eat the parsley. That’s because groundbreaking new research shows parsley and certain other plant products, including fruits and nuts, contain a natural substance that can stop certain breast cancer tumor cells from multiplying and growing.”
Apigenin blocks new vessel formation
“Dr. Hyder discovered that apigenin, which is most prevalent in parsley and celery, but is also in apples, oranges, nuts and other plant products, blocked new blood vessel formation. So it slowed and sometimes totally stopped the development of tumors. Moreover, the natural compound reduced the overall number of tumors even though it didn’t stop the initial formation of breast cancer cells.”
Eat a little parsley and some fruit every day
“We don’t have specific dosage for humans yet,” Dr. Hyder explained in the media statement. “However, it appears that keeping a minimal level of apigenin in the bloodstream is important to delay the onset of breast cancer that progresses in response to progestins such as MPA. It’s probably a good idea to eat a little parsley and some fruit every day to ensure the minimal amount. However, you can also find this compound in pill supplements in the health food section of many stores.”
